Bam Adebayo (knee) to play for Heat in smaller portions Tuesday

Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo is available for his regular amount of minutes Tuesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, per head coach Erik Spoelstra, but he will not play in long stretches.

What It Means:

Adebayo will not play for 12 minutes at a time but Spoelstra is indicating he will still be available for 30-plus minutes. KZ Okpala will likely lose the starting job Tuesday and the Heat will not need Kelly Olynyk to create as much on offense.

numberFire’s models project Adebayo for 39.9 FanDuel points versus the Cavs and he has a salary of $8,500 on Tuesday’s seven-game slate. Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Heat-Cavaliers game has the lowest over/under (207 points) on Tuesday's seven-game slate.
